Send in the Pollinators

The Siren song of blooms, both native and exotic, lure bees into our garden to help with the pollination of our fruits and vegetables.  Of course, tomatoes and peppers, are self-pollinated but they do benefit from the assistance of bees.

Our first step was to avoid the use of pesticides.  That was easy.  The next step was to acquire plants that flower throughout the summer.  Pictured above is a small selection of beauties currently peaking.  From left to right:  (top) Elephant Garlic, Pansy, Feverfew, (middle) Gooseneck Loosestrife, Butterfly Weed, Black-eyed Susan, Petite Delight Monarda, Spiderwort, and Monarda Fire Ball.
